Combining spectacular mountain scenery with challenging tracks, on 4th September 2016 the Bromo Marathon 2016 will again take runners on a magnificent journey to the breathtaking beauty of Mount Bromo in East Java.
The event features three categories of competition, including: the Full-marathon distance (42.195 km), the Half marathon distance (21.0975 km), and the 10 kilometer run. The start and finish line for the event will be drawn in the Village of Tosari - in the heart of the Tenggerese culture on the slopes of Mt. Bromo. Here Hindu descendants from Java's once powerful Majapahit rulers have retained both their religion and their culture.
Scheduled to take place in arguably one of the most dramatic settings on earth, the event will take competing runners through villages around the Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park and along the edge of the Tengger caldera. The course also provides a diversity of terrain with half the route over paved road, and half over dirt track. Incorporating several hills throughout the run, elevations vary from 1,400m to 2,400m.
Departing from the starting point in Tosari, runners will begin the first stretch of the race through asphalt road until they reach Jetak-Sunogiri. From there, the track turns into steep ascending mountainous dirt road that leads to the village of Banyumeneng. Proceeding to the village of Ngadiwono, they will re-enter the paved road on mountain slopes that offers the stunning views surrounding Mount Bromo all the way to Mojorejo, before entering Mojorejo Ngawu.
